Pisces [February 19th to March 20th]
#MeTime: Last week, the world lost a great business/peak performance coach, Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. One of the habits that Mr. Covey talks about is “Sharpening the Saw.” “Sharpening the saw” is about investing the time and energy in doing the work that helps you perform better. It sounds like common sense, but how often do we keep on goin’ without maintenance checks or even make sure that our current practices are best practices or even good…for us. With Mercury retrograde in Leo now, this is an excellent time to analyze and assess your peak performance. You could make an appointment to get a physical check-up or re-work your meditation practice. Whatever you do, be sure you’re taking time to appreciate and freshen up your most valuable asset—you.
#Heartstrings: Copacetic might not be as popular of a word as it was some years ago, but it’s the word that comes to mind when I think about what’s appears to happening for you this week. You might be more willing to ride your current wave of relationship, whether solo or duo, without rocking the boat too much. There might be a lot percolating beneath the surface in your own head though, and you may need someone who can listen attentively to what bobs up as you row along. If that’s not possible, then why you might keep a lot pent up in your chest than sharing. You may need to blog, journal or record some things out.
#MoneyMoves: Most of the planets in the sky now are either in fire or air signs. What this means for you is that there’s a great emphasis on work, security and nailing down more tangible plans. Leo season, specifically, can get you speaking and thinking about the “heart” you put into your work. If your heart is in your work, then this can be a fairly rewarding time, even financially. If your heart isn’t in your work, then now could feel like you’re at another crossroads. Fire signs, like Leo, surface how we burn with our passions and, from those passions, how we set more of the world on fire. Attend to your passion now, especially if it’s not in your current job. You might not be able to leave your job now, but stoking the fire in your heart more and at tiny doses in the “real world” could accelerate the day when you’ll be able to go.
